Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (HKG:1398), the world largest financial institution, advanced 1.5% while China Construction Bank (HKG:0939), one of the four largest banks of the country, rose 1.4%.

Looking at components of key Chinese ETFs this morning, most components of the iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index (NYSE:FXI) rose in Hong Kong with large cap energy and financial stocks taking the lead. But weakness of the telecom sector took a toll on the market in Hong Kong dashing high hopes for China Telecom (NYSE:CHA) and China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) for the day.

Small caps were mixed in Asia on Thursday, as components of the Guggenheim Small Cap China ETF (NYSE:HAO) testify. There is no direction among small caps this morning.

If components of the Hang Seng Index (INDEXHANGSENG:.HSI) can serve as proxy for ADR and ETF trading, outlook is best for oil major Petrochina Co. Ltd. (NYSE:PTR) and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (NYSE:SNP) from the energy sector. China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) was the best component of the Hang Seng Index (INDEXHANGSENG:.HSI) on Thursday, suggesting the stock will gep up on the NYSE this morning as well. Financial and energy heavy weight iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index (NYSE:FXI) is looking good ahead the opening bell as well.
